WILMINGTON, Mass. (AP) -Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Hunwick was taken to a hospital to be checked for a spleen injury.

Bruins coach Claude Julien says Hunwick wasn't feeling well after the team meeting Saturday, ahead of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoff series against Montreal.

Julien says Hunwick's problem is "related to his spleen" and trainers did the right thing by calling an ambulance.

Hunwick was involved in a Game 1 fight with Montreal's Mike Komisarek and needed stitches above his right eye. Hunwick practiced on Friday.
